June 14th

For the last four months, Marlee's been training with Rob here, (whom we like to call Jason Bourne), in Krav Maga, which is "a tactical martial system developed in Israel that consists of a combination of techniques sourced from boxing, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, judo, jiu jitsu, wrestling, and grappling, along with realistic fight training. It is known for it's focus on real-world situations & extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks."  So basically, you don't want to mess with Mars. And apparently, she's quite good at it. She's almost done with her training to become a certified instructor in it, which includes sending a video of her to the top Krav Maga guys in the Israeli Defense Forces for approval.
They practice with fake guns & knives & even pens. Not just self-defense, but how to get the knife from the guy & then how to use it on him. 
Crazy stuff!

It's so nice to not have to worry about her, especially as she goes off to college.  Actually, I feel sorry for anyone who does mess with her. She almost knocked out a SWAT team guy she was practicing with the other day. For reals!!

that's what she said...

I LOVE that you have her in this! I wish my parents had done something similar for me when I found myself working shifts in college that required me riding the bus at 12am sometimes. So scary.
